the focus of this course (Routing and Switching) is on learning the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. In this course, you will learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. You will do the following:

  • describe enhanced switching technologies such as VLANs, VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP), Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), Per VLAN Spanning Tree Protocol (PVSTP), and 802.1q
  •  configure and troubleshoot basic operations of a small switched network
  • configure and verify static routing and default routing
  •  configure and troubleshoot basic operations of routers in a small routed network
  •  configure and troubleshoot VLANs and inter-VLAN routing
  •  configure, monitor, and troubleshoot DHCP for IPv4 and IPv6
  • configure, monitor, and troubleshoot ACLs for IPv4 and IPv6

By the end of this course, you will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks
